Like everyone else here, apparently, I also refused to watch His Arrogance give another State of the Union Address. Because he's only really given one speech in his career, repeating it with slight variations, as inappropriate, I didn't feel I actually needed to watch. I expect he used some combination of the following devices and attacks:
1). Passive-Aggressive pathology: Set up a condition so perfectly benign that no one could possibly agree with it, then propose some insane solution and call your opponents crazy when they disagree. Example: "(condition) The children of America deserve a good education. (solution) Therefore, I propose we implant antennae in their brains and beam the information in via satellite, and (name-calling) we could get it done if only those obstructionist Republicans would come to the table."
2). False compromise: Set up an insane condition and then call for Republican compromise. Example: (condition) "I think taxes should be raised to the post World War II rate of 95%, but I'm willing to compromise to a rate of 94% or 93%."
3). Flat-out Falsehood: Just lie like a rug. Example: "I believe in the right to choose." Yeah, like the right to choose not to participate in Obamacare. Like the right to choose to own a gun. Unless it's the right to choose to murder your own children, he has no belief in it.
4). Call on the ghost of Bin Laden. Example: "Sure unemployment's up,the price of gas is up and pretty much the cost of everything is up, but hey, Bin Laden is down!"
I expect the rest of the hour was taken up with democRats applauding and standing. And that's why I didn't watch. He has nothing to say that could possibly interest me, and his "soaring rhetoric" fails to inspire thrills up my leg, or anywhere else, and I feel no need to validate his ego nor do I want to spend any time watching him defecating on the Constitution.
